2019-20 applications are invited from organisations who can provide innovative solutions focused on overcoming barriers older Queenslanders face in relation to the age-friendly domains of communication and information, and social participation. 

Seed funding is available for initiatives involving partnerships between local government, community and other organisations to co-develop, implement and promote innovative age-friendly projects. 

Successful applications will receive one-off grant funding between $25,000 and $100,000.

The Advancing Queensland: age-friendly community grants program is an important component of the Queensland Government’s commitment to supporting age-friendly communities as outlined in the Queensland: an age-friendly communityStrategic Direction Statement and Action Plan. The Queensland Government committed $1 million per year for three years from 2017–18 to fund the development of innovative age-friendly projects.
